    Hello. I use an Intel AnyPoint Home Network USB Phoneline Adapter system to link my 4 Win XP Pro computers together for filesharing and for sharing my DSL internet connection. It works great AS LONG as I don't have Win XP SP1 or SP2 installed. After I installed SP1 a while back, Windows could not see the AnyPoint Network Adapter any longer. Trying to add it in the Add Hardware program didn't work. As soon as I uninstalled SP1, all was OK. I recently installed SP2 and had exactly the same problem. Windows refused to recognize the Anypoint adapter. Uninstalling SP2 fixed the problem. Has anyone else had the same problem? If so, do you know what can be done to either fix the problem or work around it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

    Thanks for the reply. That's the problem. I had already checked out the AnyPoint support page a while back and they said that tech support for AnyPoint, e-mail, phone calls or otherwise, was no longer available. Looks like I'll just have to install a different networking system if I want to use SP2.
